4. Now Nehlen is in a Twitter row with a libertarian group, headed by a Jew.

Nehlen says the guy is "pretending to be white."

Wisconsin GOP candidate accuses Jew of ‘pretending’ to be white so he can ‘undermine’ the white race

A conservative candidate who is running to replace House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) attacked a director at a libertarian-oriented group — who happens to be Jewish — on Twitter, saying he is only “pretending to be white” for nefarious reasons.

Far-right candidate Paul Nehlen took offense this week after Foundation for Individual Rights in Education director Ari Cohn tweeted about “Twitter Nazis,” according to a report at The Daily Banter.

In the back and forth, Cohn wrote, “Sometimes Twitter Nazis remind me that I am Jewish. As if my last name would ever let me forget,” later adding, “I am … white,” before pointing out to Nehlen that he was the recipient of anti-Semitic comments from one of Nehlen’s followers.

Nehlen responded by calling Cohn a “bigot,” writing, “Just admit you are a (((bigot))) @aricohn and I’ll pretend you didn’t pretend you were white for the purposes of starting a race war w me.”

“It’s okay to be white,” Nehlen then tweeted. “It’s not okay to pretend to be for purposes of undermining whites. But you knew that.”

Cohn fired right back, tweeting: “You are unhinged. It has nothing to do with the fact that you’re white. It has everything to do with the fact that you’re an asshole. Get a grip, get some help.”
